Israel, Hamas agree on new 72-hour truce


Israel and Palestinian groups including Hamas have agreed to a 72-hour humanitarian truce in Gaza.


The ceasefire will start at 05:00 GMT today.


Yesterday Israel held its own seven-hour "humanitarian window" in Gaza but then resumed its military operations.


Health officials in Gaza say more than 1,800 Palestinians have been killed in the four-week conflict, which has also claimed 67 Israeli lives.
